The Glee Project, premiering on Oxygen, Sunday June 12 at 9 pm ET/PT will find and train a group of “extraordinarily talented performers” who will compete against one another to win a multi-episode guest starring role on Glee.
For the premiere episode on June 12th, “Glee” star Darren Criss will serve as a mentor to the contenders. Not only that, creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy will be featured in every episode.
After the jump, watch the 12 contenders in their very first music video performing Katy Perry’s “Firework”. Also, for your viewing pleasure, a video featuring Darren Criss discussing his involvement in The Glee Project.
